It’s not every day an emerging artist gets the stamp of approval from multiple industry legends – but for longstoryshort, it’s becoming the norm. Praised by the likes of Dr. Fresch, CID, Wax Motif, Tchami and Dillon Francis, longstoryshort is making waves in the dance music scene, and it’s hard to ignore.

On July 28, longstoryshort is dropping “LET’S GET ILL” – a fiery bass house track, with an intricate and crisp production and hype vocals that has proven to make dancefloors rowdy. Self-released on his own JustUs imprint, “LETS GET ILL” has already been rinsed by Austin Millz, and Dr Fresch.

On the tracks’ sound longstoryshort explains; “My last EP “HER” was very melodic and “LET’S GET ILL” was inspired by all my recent touring. It’s been amazing to finally start playing shows, being on tour this year with Dr. Fresh and Knock2 was motivating to get back in the lab and make more music for the clubs.”

Summer 2023 is proving to be a pivotal one for LSS, as he’s been booked as support for Dylan & Harry, and Habstrakt, and has set at esteemed festivals like Lost Lands and Freaky Deaky.

It’s clear that longstoryshort’s story is just beginning – watch this space for more info.

About longstoryshort:In 2019, longstoryshort began his name-making campaign with “Back to the Start,” a bass house heater that, in retrospect, underscored the promise inherent in the New York native’s inventive sound design. Three years, five EPs, 19 singles, and two remixes later, longstoryshort’s ability to re-envisioning and redefining bass house remains strong. Such that his sound can no longer be singularly classified as bass house. longstoryshort’s style has become synonymous with attention to structure, cohesion, and conceptual weaving that’s rare in dance/electronic circles-and the industry has taken notice. In just three short years, he’s earned support from fixtures ranging from Dr. Fresch to Zeds Dead to Snakehips to Don Diablo to Doctor P to NIGHTMARE to Kill the Noise to Tchami while taking his concept-driven productions to a commensurately diverse collection of labels, like Pilot (UKF), NIGHTMODE, Circus Records, Divided Souls and Never Worry Records. The traction has come rapidly as LSS has produced and released music at a uniquely high volume and caliber.

The growth of longstoryshort’s audience mirrors that of his catalog. Reflective of the depth and expanse typical of a veteran DJ/producer, his repertoire bespeaks his sharp curatorial ear and his capacity to work in and across sonic spaces. Though longstoryshort’s sound consistently engages bass elements, it does so in fresh and idiosyncratic ways that flirt with hip-hop and house inflection. And though a large part of his release history has roots in the bass house genre, his continuously evolving sound has been best described as a sort of catchall coined-in his own words- “cinematic bass” and “music for the heavy-hearted”.
longstoryshort’s brand of cinematic bass bears a narrative that tells sonic stories. And this is who longstoryshort is at his core: a creative who uses music as his conduit to tell stories. It’s no accident that literary language like “preface,” “chapter,” and “intro” has pervaded the titles of his EPs and their tracklists. Like words on a page, the vocal samples, toplines, drum kicks, and other elements that he uses never function as disparate parts. They are chosen deliberately, one by one, to fashion a narrative that is immediately audible as a longstoryshort production. longstoryshort’s redemption EP, released via Justus Recs on May 20, 2022, is an example of this approach that shows him to be in the business of crafting complete, concept-driven bodies of work. In short, redemption is the lens through which longstoryshort listeners both new and established can view and understand the artist’s project.
Beyond the release of redemption, 2022 has been a year of accolades for longstoryshort. He appeared at Ultra Miami, coming out during Wax Motif ‘s set, where they played their April collaboration, “On The Low,” to the crowd at Bayfront Park. The single, played out by Tchami, Diplo, Don Diablo, and Afrojack, was the prelude to longstoryshort’s debut performance at EDC Las Vegas in May.
2023 began with releases along with an EP on Insomniac Records imprint Lost in Dreams. The concept EP is his modern take on the emotional melodic golden era of the house. Armed with a creative vision and clear technical skills, longstoryshort is a storyteller. And these days, the most compelling story he’s telling is his own.
